Earlier today, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler stated that the agency would be looking into company documents to figure out the crux of the issue with Comcast and Verizon’s networks in relation to Netflix’s streaming. From there, the FCC will see if stricter regulation is required.
The conflict originates from Netflix’s agreement with both Verizon and Comcast to run data through their networks after. The company has voiced its concern that internet service providers are extorting services like theirs. On top of that they feel that they’re not getting the service they should given that they’re paying to use their networks. In contrast, providers say that Netflix brings so much traffic that they’ve had to update their network to handle it.
In discussing the FCC’s role in the conflict, Wheeler said that at the moment the agency was “collecting information, not regulating.” While the issue is directly related to Netflix’s claims that there is a gross violation of net neutrality, Wheeler assures that the investigation isn’t related to the claim.
